Abortion, It's My Choice
It's my body and I can do exactly what I want and I choose to. You, as a man, have no right to tell me what to do!
You know, you're right, it IS your body and you can do whatever you want to do with YOUR body.
HOWEVER, once you conceive it isn't just your body anymore.
You did make your choice - you chose to have sex.
Now it is time for responsibility and accept the consequence of your choice.
Did you know that the word fetus itself is a Latin word meaning little one. In fact, wikipeida gives a great definition - check it out.
Did you know that from the moment of conception, the only two components that the fetus requires are food and oxygen - the same two components that you and I need to live.
Did you know that the heart starts beating on its own at between 18 - 21 days?
Did you know that from the moment of conception everything that the fetus will ever be is there - nothing is added and nothing is taken away. All the 46 chromosomes and all the 30,000 genes make up your own genetic code that determine who you are, your personality, your feelings, your eye color, your skin color, your everything.
Did you know that brain activity has been recorded as early as 40 days in utero?
Did you know that the fetus and the mother have two separate blood vessels?
You made the choice, allow the child within you to make theirs.
The next time someone says it's my body and I'm not hurting anyone; remind them that yes, they are!
